CMT TO DEBUT FIRST-LOOK AT "STILL THE KING" STARRING BILLY RAY CYRUS AND JOEY LAUREN ADAMS DURING THE SERIES FINALE OF "PARTY DOWN SOUTH" ON THURSDAY, APRIL 7TH AT 9PM ET/PT

NASHVILLE - April 5, 2016 - CMT today announced that fans will get an exclusive "first look" at the highly anticipated forthcoming scripted comedy "Still The King" when a special two-minute introductory piece to the series premieres during the finale of "Party Down South," Thursday, April 7 at 9pm ET/PT. Starring Billy Ray Cyrus and Joey Lauren Adams, "Still The King" premieres Sunday, June 12 at 9pm ET/PT.

"Still The King" features Cyrus as Vernon Brown, AKA "Burnin' Vernon," a scandal-ridden washed up one-hit wonder who is kicked out of country music, only to emerge 20 years later as the second best Elvis impersonator. After crashing into an old country church outside of Nashville during a drunken bender, he is sentenced to return and perform community service. Along the way, he pretends to be the congregation's new minister and discovers he has a 15-year-old daughter he's never met. In addition to Cyrus and Adams, "Still The King" stars Madison Iseman ("Laid in America" and Nickelodeon's "Henry Danger") Lacey Chabert("Mean Girls" and "Party of Five"), Leslie David Baker ("The Office"), Kevin Farley ("Eight Crazy Nights" and "The Waterboy"), Travis Nicholson and Jon Sewell.

The first look at the much-anticipated series follows the announcement that CMT is doubling its original programming and now focused on four distinct lanes of programming: music, unscripted, documentaries and scripted. CMT's original series are fueling consistent growth for the brand with premieres for the quarter up nearly 10% from a year ago.*

The series marks one of two scripted projects coming to CMT this year. CMT debuts the scripted drama "Million Dollar Quartet" (working title) this November, starring Chad Michael Murray ("Agent Carter," "Outlaws and Angels" and "Texas Rising"), Billy Gardell ("Mike & Molly"), Keir O'Donnell ("Fargo," "American Sniper") and Jennifer Holland ("American Pie Presents: The Book of Love," "American Horror Story"). Drake Milligan,Kevin Fonteyne, Christian Lees, Jonah Lees and Margaret Anne Florence also star. Set in Memphis during the tumultuous early days of the civil rights movement, "Million Dollar Quartet" tells the untold true story of nothing less than the birth of rock 'n' roll. Guided by Sam Phillips, young musicians like Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis combined the styles of hillbilly country with the 1950s R&B sound created by artists like Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Fats Domino and Ike Turner, and changed the course of music forever. The series chronicles these young artists' often jarring and sudden meteoric rise to fame in the face of sweeping political change and social unrest.

After five seasons of crazy vacations and too many hangovers to count, the beloved "Party Down South" cast says farewell to Savannah and to each other on this week's series finale. Following the finale at 10pm ET/PT, the cast reunites for "Party Down South: The Final Funnel," where they'll take a special look back on their vacations and relive the biggest fights, best hook-ups and craziest nights out on the town.

"Still The King" is produced by HIDEOUT PICTURES with Billy Ray Cyrus serving as executive producer and writer. Shannon Houchins, Potsy Ponciroli and Travis Nicholson also executive produce. Julia Silverton and Jayson Dinsmore executive produce for CMT.

"Party Down South" is produced by 495 Productions, with SallyAnn Salsano, Joel Zimmer and Paul Storck serving as executive producers. Jayson Dinsmore and Morgan Selzer executive produce for CMT.
